A guide to slowing down, enjoying more and being happy

A handbook for the new decade: a book that helps you think about how to slow down, reconnect and live a gentler life.

Monocle has always been a champion of taking it slow. It has encouraged readers to dive into a lake and go for a run. To sleep well. To eat food whose makers are proud of its provenance. In a shouty, jabbing-finger moment in history, it has done its bit to argue for a new modern etiquette to be generous with our time, hospitality and forgiveness. Now its editors and correspondents have brought all of this together in The Monocle Manifesto for a Gentler Life, a book that urges us all to slow down, reconnect, make good things and see nice places. And it also knows when to wear a cheeky smile.

Chapters include:

  • An illustrated guide to being nice, respecting your neighbour and controlling your social media rants.
  • Profiles of the happiest nations – and the least lonely too.
  • How to build a house that’s good for you and your family.
  • Essays from leading thinkers and great writers on what we can gain if we shift gear.
  • The businesses charting a better course – from management to pride in production.
  • Food – a celebration of the locally made, the chefs that bring people together and a recipe or two.
  • The objects to own that will give pleasure for years.
  • The people who changed direction, slowed down and made it work.
  • The compact cities where you can run a company, be inspired, have a good social life – and be hiking in a forest at 5pm.
